About Hot ‘N' Throbbing

Take Charlene, a suburban mother who writes erotic screenplays for women in order to support herchildren; add Clyde, her funny, dangerously obsessive and estranged husband; toss in hormonallyovercharged teenagers; and layer it all with a screenplay on a deadline that Charlene desperately tries towrite-and you end up with HOT 'N' THROBBING, a gripping new play written by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of How I Learned To Drive.
